Shaping a Sustainable Future for Learning Environments



"Education Estates® is the national conversation around the education estate" Crawford Wright, Head of Architecture and Design: Schools and Colleges at the Department for Education


Education Estates® is the UK's leading learning environments event - a unique forum that brings the whole community together.  For many of our participants, it’s the only event of the year that brings together the whole community: from policy makers and designers to suppliers and educators.  It is also a key resource to gain valuable insight into upcoming policy and practical knowledge from experts in the sector.


The 12th edition of Education Estates® will take place on 15-16 October 2024 at Manchester Central. The event comprises a two-day multi-stream conference, an exhibition showcasing some of the most innovative solutions around and an awards ceremony celebrating excellence in the sector. The event’s success can be attributed to its strict focus on educational infrastructure: the funding, design, build, maintenance and management of schools, colleges and universities. 

The last event broke records across the board, with the highest ever number of speakers, exhibitors, awards guests and attendees. Do check out our gallery for highlights and our awards page to view the winning companies and projects. 

The conversation continues in London at the Net Zero Conference (16 May 2024) and  SEND Conference (February 2025).
